Advanced Placement & Prior Learning Programs

Already Have A Degree?

If you already have a university degree, you may be eligible to enroll in a BCIT graduate certificate program. The Graduate Certificate in Business Analytics is a part-time program that can be completed in one year and the Graduate Certificate in Business Administration is a full-time program that can lead into a number of MBA degree programs.

Direct Entry/Prior Learning Nine Month Diploma Programs

The Business Management and Human Resource Management diploma programs are designed for students that already have a degree or diploma. These nine month full-time programs are a quick way to enter the workforce or continue on to the Bachelor of Business Administration (BBA) Degree program.

These programs recognize the prior learning, training, and experience of the Canadian Forces (Regular or Reservist) and First Responders (Firefighter, Paramedic, Police), and mature students who have a combination of management experience and industry training certificates (but do not have a diploma or degree). Inquiries regarding eligibility under any of these categories should be directed to appl@bcit.ca.

The BCIT School of Business offers students with prior post secondary education the opportunity for advanced placement in a number of full-time diploma programs. Seats are limited and entry into the advanced placement programs is competitive.
